Tomorrow, Sunday 27th of July we have the second in our series of Family Summer Walks. These walks are open to members and non-members alike. They are shorter, at a slower pace and involve less climbing than our usual hikes, so ideal for anyone wanting to see if Hill Walking is for them, or wanting to check out their fitness levels before joining one of our regular walks. Members go free, there is a charge of £5/ walk for non-members, attend all 4 walks and you will have paid your membership and will be a fully-fledged “Gappy”!!!
You will need walking boots and a waterproof jacket, rain is forecast for tomorrow but with a bit of luck we may avoid it! Bring a packed lunch and a drink.
Children are welcome and go free but remain the responsibility of their accompanying adult. Please consider their age and stamina before dragging them out, these walks are definitely not suitable for very young kids or push chairs.
This week we will be on Carrickbroad Mountain walking at times on rough open hillside, more in keeping with the terrain of our usual walks. If you are interested in seeing the local area from a different perspective and learning a little about its history, then meet at 12 noon in the Gap car park for registration, from where we will drive the short distance to our starting point.
